demographic. i don't believe for one minute that john kerry would have had the same appeal in the way coming in two successful elections, that obama had. i agree that there are probably some big issues that need to be dealt with in a different way with certain portions of the electorate. i believe we had a fourth candidate. new sod jolt benisons analysis of the election. soft underbelly was the people did not trust him. they did not know what you believe it. conservatives did not know what to believe. you had a guy running for president and it was not until the tail and that the conservatives came home hard for romney as romney and not just being against obama. politics is a lot more dynamic. remember, two years ago, we had a huge republican wave. as you look of the way at least congressional districts are locked bin for the foreseeable future, you have a lot of bleeding out of redistricting that happened, but you have a lot of members who were in republican districts where they are locked in where they are pretty white and locked in and they have quadra is back at home that favor them. some
washington post" reports this man, senator john kerry, might be tapped to be the secretary of defense. you heard correctly, defense. the senator has long been rumored as a possible replacement when secretary of state hillary clinton steps down as planned, but "the washington post" said senator kerry might be a part of what they call an extensive rearrangement of the president's national security team. the white house declined to comment. >>> it's orientation on capitol hill. new members of the 113th congress and the too 2 close too call candidates took their first official steps in d.c. this morning. most of the candidates in tight races were invited, bringing the total to over 80 new members taking part in orientation this week. newly elected members will be sworn into office on january 3rd. >>> congressman jesse jackson judge left the mayo clinic where he was being treated for bipolar disorder. a spokesperson said he left the minnesota clinic today and elected to a ninth full term representing his chicago district despite not campaigning and barely appearing in public since taking medica
. senator john kerry and national security adviser tom donlon have also been mentioned as potential replacements. hillary clinton may remain secretary of state for the beginning of the president's second term. >>> this morning we're seeing how emotional president obama became during and after his re-election bid. >> what you guys have done to continue the work that i'm doing, i'm really proud of that. i'm really proud of all of you. and what you have done -- [ applause ] >> the president got choked up when he thanked members of his campaign staff on wednesday. he told his staffers and volunteers that he is confident they will do amazing things in their lives. >>> dozens of students at one virginia college may be disciplined for how they reacted to the president's victory. hampdon sydney college said 40 students were upset and set off fireworks, threw bottles, and shouted racial slurs at members of a minority student organization. some of them even made threats. the incident never turned physically violent. the all male college's president said some of the students may even be expell
of speculation that john kerry could be the next secretary of state. you know what that would lead to? within six months we could have a special election in massachusetts for another u.s. senate. >> interesting how that happens sometimes. we showed the screen, what is that about? >> very quickly, i know you love this thing, the most expensive electoral vote, we thought we would let you know what it was between the parties. in the state of iowa, maybe more money spent in virginia, but per electoral votes, $12 million for the electoral votes. i think people should know that the virginia senate race cost almost $80 million, the massachusetts senate race, just over $70 million, a little perspective here, 12 years ago. bush and gore, when they ran for president both spent less than that just on their general election budgets, that was for president, this is what senate races cost now. >> all right, chuck todd with the good, the bad and the ugly and some of the damage from last night. chuck, thanks, we'll be talking about this for a long time. when we come back, this really was the election the whole w
an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clothes from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least five things a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and doing something that he will oppose in the end, cause he is mindful of 2014, as tom said. or whether you do not get that kind of impact and mcconnell works overtime to yank its members back into a tougher and negotiating position. if that is the case, we go right over the cliff. >> i think mitch mcconnell will not be able to sustain unified republican support behind filibusters over the long -- clusters. >> over the long, it may work to the lame-duck session, but the on but it, it is no longer possible. but norm's scenario of the quiet person in the back sp
teed about include senator john kerry, somebody very prominent and helped prep the president for the debate. susan rice the u.n. ambassador has also been talked about leading contender. she got caught up in the whole benghazi situation. the famous now infamous sunday morning talk show interviews that were confusing. that may hurt her chances. we will see. the other big name out there is eric holder, the attorney general, whether or not he will stay or go. today he addressed that take a listen. that's something i'm in the process of trying to determine. the first step has already occurred the president has been reelected and i will have to think about can i contribute in a second term. sit down and talk with him. >> he has obviously been through a lot of controversy. the fact that he is even considering the possibility is obviously getting people to think that he is one person who might leave some time in the near future. the other person to watch would be tim geithner the treasury secretary. jack lu the white house staff is one of the leading contender ifs geithner does go. h
expressed similar concerns about rice. shep? >> shepard: senator john kerry's name has been floated to head the state department and now we're hearing maybe the defense department instead. >> insiders long feel that senator kerry wants. the late pentagon is a bit puzzling for some. decorated war veteran himself. kerry has taken heat for accusing the military for war crimes and stories about tossing away his own medals in protest it. republicans question how that record would go over with the military men and women he would be leading and representing and some democrats are quietly worried that kerry's nomination to head the feds would fed the swift vote opposition. senator kerry's only focus right now is his job as senior senator from massachusetts and chairman of the foreign relations committee. shep, as you mentioned, offensive these names are floated throughout just a trial balloon. >> shepard: shannon bream in washington. the state of washington's new marijuana law hasn't yet taken effect. people are already getting the benefit of it? prosecutors across the state have started dropping d
kerr gee a better choice for secretary of state and if john kerry is, then that could be really good news for scott brown because if john kerry left as senator of massachusetts, there would be a special election. scott brown would most probably be favored. of course, he was beaten by elizabeth warren a couple days ago. >> brian: i have a better idea for him. colin powell. he's obviously a fan, knows his stuff. colin powell is obviously a supporter. it seems to be a good indication of reaching across the aisle. >> steve: maybe. >> brian: 24 minutes before the top of the hour. last night dennis miller did his normal stint on bill o'reilly. he had a different take, speaking from the heart rather than the sense of humor portion of plains. listen. >> the election, i think this is where this country is at right now. i don't know everybody else's political predirection. yesterday some people think this was the best day america ever had. its proudest moment. i don't agree. i know i'm going to be the object of readvantage now, but i'm not going to back off it. i like a country where people bu
issa. and a lot of talk about john kerry taking over as secretary of state. >> but then who will replace him in the senate? >> stephanie: it will be fun. >> it was fun until scott brown got in there. now arizona is stuck with jan brewer. ♪ bone finger ♪ >> stephanie: ann in idaho, hello, ann. >> caller: good morning, stephanie. >> stephanie: good morning. >> caller: y'all are such wonderful people, i wake up with you in the morning and go to bed with you at night. >> stephanie: ann! >> caller: now that we have put our wonderful young man into office, we have got to remember one thing. don't leave him alone. when i saw a grown man cry, i realized that this is the type of person that is going to really be able to turn this country around. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: but he has to has us help him. send him notices let him know whatever he does we're behind him. >> stephanie: and i think we learned our lesson in 2010 and we have his back this time. >> stephanie: mcconnell and boehner they are so smug i just want to take something and throw it at the tv
for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups that they made in november it's not going to be -- on election day it's knots going to be a question of control of the senate one way or the other so they might be willing to give up that seat potentially to scott brown who might come back in another special election. martha: they have a little bit of a cushion now which gives them a little bit of flexibility on john terry as you point out. in terms of the attorney general position, obviously heale obvious obviously eric holder has been through the ringer in the last four years. i don't think anyone would be some surprised to see him step down. any thoughts on who would replace him in he did? >> one of the people who is being mentioned and again we don't know how serious that is is janet napolitano, secretary of homeland security. she really apparently would
. bush defeated john kerry, killed with recrimination and remorse. what could we have done. all of that is healthy ultimately. but that should not be interpreted by this president as a foundation of his strength or source of republican weakness. it is a process of rebuilding strength. as we look at what he said today, he said he wants to talk about balance. but didn't talk about spending cuts. all of these -- more than 20 new taxes will not amount to the same amount of money. it will be about 60% of the total deficit. that's wait amounts to. so it's going to have to be what the president alluded to vaguely as balance, and whatever they agree to. there will have to be sharp, tough decisions on what will be cut in this federal budget. it's unsustainable. one thing that cheers me and should cheer everyone concerned about responsible fiscal policy is that this president doesn't have any choice. by the way, ultimately neither does baron or mcconnell. we are watching all of the prolific spending, the irresponsibility come crashing down around our heads. the markets cannot suffer much
impact that. a number of sources saying she is the president's top contender for that post. senator john kerry obviously seen as a potential contender for that lot because of his work in the senate on foreign policy in those issues. for right now it looks like rice is much closer to getting the nod. connell: the issues that will come up. benghazi is one of them. the impact does will have on the president's decisions. >> in absolutely the fiscal cliff. issues about the inspiring tax cuts, sequestration, the impact. there ben vaults for years. some will be likely to walk away. leon panetta has been very vocal about his concerns about health sequestration could impact that pentagon. because of that, that will keep him in place. >> that would beecher defense secretary leon panetta. he has fought hard against sequestration because he did not want to see the types of cuts that sequestration calls for for the defense department. he is going to see that through. >> keep in mind, he probably has the toughest and most expensive commute which taxpayers are paying for going back and forth between th
encouraging the senate to act quickly in approving his successor. john kerry could be nominated secretary of defense. president obama may tap the vietnam vet to replace leon panetta, if he departs. this time he remains focused on his job in the senate. adolf hitler once called home, what to do with this home. suggesting it be made into a residence. the building is privately owned and being rented by the town's government. those are your headlines. time to get back to connell. connell: thank you for that. the president obama scheduled to get the first of many meetings started right now. you have the same cast of characters to go shooting the same issues. chris eyre -- joins us now. when you try to bet on it as market participants are trying to do, this time, what side do you take? >> well, good question. i think this time we go into the negotiations ii the president has, you know, a slightly different situation than he had before. he is reelected now so he does not have to face voters again in a year a half or so. also, the republicans are in a situation where they will be faced with tax i
with an incumbent. he went after john kerry's war record. >> what did president bush do? he claimed a mandate he didn't have on iraq and it sank his presidency. sorry to interrupt. >> is there a number to sum up the election? 47%. a moment to sum up the obama campaign, it was the first debate. these were self-inflicted wounds that these candidates may to themselves. much influence do you think they had? >> i think the 47% was a pretty big deal. democrats have been laying the groundwork with these attack ads portraying romney as the guy who cared about the middle class and was interested in protecting rich people like himself. romney sort of betrayed himself. the democrats seized on that. it happened at a time when romney's candidacy was floundering. the first debate, he was able to put that 47% behind him, but the damage was done. >> he put that behind him in his first debate. he spent all that money and allow time characterizing romney as an uncaring monster. all the sudden he looked reasonable. he looked like somebody who could be president. the president did not bring his a game. part of it w
gum. get rid of it. i was going to tell you earlier but didn't have a chance. john kerry is my friend. i work so hard for him when he was running for president. i did everything i could to help him. and he came very, very close. there's been no better legislator that i served with. he's been wait out front on issues dealing with climate change, infrastructure, bank development and many other things. so i don't know any ks that the president or anyone in the white house has had with him and any conversation i've had with john kerry, he does not bring up his being secretary of anything. but i'll do everything to help him if he's chosen. and we feel very comfortable if in fact something does happen, we feel comfortable in massachusetts. i think that i've already told you how i feel about scott brown. >> what do you think are his priorities should be coming out of today's press conference? >> the president's priorities are what he outlined in his campaign. protect the middle class and small business. we are one vote away from that being accomplished. all we have to do is have the house of
not have the chance. john kerry is my friend. i worked so hard for him when he was running for president. i did everything i could to help them. he came very close. there has been no better legislator that i served with. he has been way out front on issues dealing with climate change, infrastructure, bank development, many other things. i do not know any conversation with the president or anyone in the white house has had with him. any conversation i have had with john kerry, he does not bring up the secretary of anything. i'll do everything i can to help him if he is chosen. we feel very comfortable if in fact something does happen, we feel comfortable that massachusetts will -- i have already told you how i feel about scott brown. >> what do you think his priorities should be? >> the president's priorities are to protect the middle-class and small business. we are one vote away from that being accomplished. all we have to do is have the house of representatives bring up our bill. we have brought up their bill -- it was roundly defeated. they should do this to help the american people. all
as dismal a failure as john kerry. their racism the difference between romney losing in bush winning, with just a slight demographic shift in the country from 2004 to 2012. looking not where the republicans go, again, i think the best way to approach a is to try to figure out how you deal with a group -- the key groups. if you done better among women and with the help of todd akin and richard murdoch, you look in their small part. immigration is gearing to the right on immigration and his unwillingness to have a discussion with the voters. with african-american voters and ronnie doesn't have anything to do with this. all the talk about voter suppression for democrats trying to cheat, just increase the turnout tremendously among african-american voters. >> two parts. one of the primary and one in the general that i thought really? the first would be the debate in which he sitting next to rick perry. in the strongly to rick perry on immigration and attach rate hairy you never thought of as a squishy liberal for signing a dream act. at night at night that you know, if you're going to li
of the names that's been thrown around, senator john kerry, who helped the president prepare for the debates, has been talked about possibly going to state. there are other names being thrown around as well, and i'm sure those lists will continue to grow in the coming days. as for the president, nothing public on his schedule today, other than the presidential daily briefing, that will happen later this morning. the first one that will happen here at the white house, since his re-election. the president and the first family return here to the white house, late yesterday. the staff was planning to have a welcome out on the south lawn, but because of bad weather, marine one could not land here, so it was a low-key arrival. what's on the president's agenda, moving forward, you've been talking about dealing with the fiscal cliff, also the president has to work on trying to unite the country after a very divisive and very expensive campaign. in addition, the president will work very hard to try to build a different relationship with members of congress. we saw him already reach out by phone to jo
that happens in washington a lot. the other candidate, of course, would be senator john kerry. very likely candidate since he's involved very much in international affairs and yet susan rice seems to be -- that names seems to be rising to the top. >> as you mentioned, secretary's flexibility will allow the president to nominate nsomeone who may not get confirmed and go to plan b. the president just lost a safety director. he's going to lose secretary clinton. his afghan war general involved in a scandal. is this shaping the president's foreign policy, without him directing it? are there real effects to all of this, do you think, worldwide? >> at this point, no, i don't think that. and one of the reasons is that the foreign policy really, a lot of it comes directly from the white house. there is a lot of control by this administration over what the direction is. after all, the president is one who is in charge and secretary clinton certainly has been very much a part of creating some of that, and carrying it out. but i think you have to say that at this point to say that when she leaves or
